I am in full accord with Indropo Agnusi – LML 25-03-2011.
I used to write reviews of Immune complex diseases and emphasised that efficient elimination of antigen required an excess of antibody with complement and in the case of Henoch Schoenlein Purpura in children, steroids should be avoided to allow the good effect of complexing. Bed rest and perhaps an aspirin would be enough unless the kidneys were involved.
